Details of Lady Gaga’s role in American Horror Story see the light of day.
Earlier this year, Gaga unexpectedly announced her recurring role on the upcoming Hotel season of American Horror Story. Not much is known about Gaga’s role… until now! Show creator Ryan Murphy confirms to Deadline her AHS character has zero musical performances and is part of the goriest season to date.
People, keep saying to me, ‘What numbers are they singing, what numbers are they singing,’ and I say there will be no numbers. The interesting thing is we cast a lot of singers this season but I like that singers, for the most part, are always great actors because they know how to sell a story through song, through a scene. I’m excited about that and I think that’s why Gaga was excited about it; it’s not something that she’s ever done before. It’s a pure acting part. I think people expect that she’s going to be sitting in a bar in a white silk gown sort of singing songs — she is not. The upcoming season that we’re doing is much more horror-based; it’s much more dark. It’s about a theme and an idea that’s very close to my heart that I’ve always wanted to do that’s a little bloodier and grislier I think than anything that we’ve done before; it’s straight horror this year.
He later added her part is “bananas good.”

Previous to Murphy’s latest revelation, he teased Gaga’s role is involved in an AHS love triangle with Matt Bomer (swoon) and Finn Wittrock, who played psychotic serial killer Dandy Mott during last season’s Freak Show.
Finn Wittrock is checking into HOTEL. Who will Gaga choose — Finn or Matt Bomer? #AHSHotel
